Best Mattress for a Stomach Sleeper: The Online Mattress Guide (2018)

DreamCloud Mattress Review - on slats bed

Are you a stomach sleeper looking for a comfortable mattress with great support?

Want to buy online – and save a ton of money?

You’ve come to the right place.

As you may have already guessed from the many disappointing mattresses you’ve slept on in the past: stomach sleepers have a hard time finding the right mattress.

Many of the top online mattress brands come with only one comfort level – medium firm.  This is fine for back, side and combination sleepers. Medium-firm mattresses provide a good balance between soft contouring and firm support.

But they are not necessarily the right choice for a for stomach sleeper, who need a firmer mattress with more support and just the right amount of contouring.

If the mattress is too soft, some sections of your body are going to sink lower and warp your spinal cord into an unnatural posture, which can cause back problems.

You also need more cooling and better motion control if you share your bed – and a touch of contouring to cradle your shoulders, ribs, and hips.

So which mattresses are best for someone who sleeps on their belly all night?

The Best Mattresses for Side Sleepers (That You Can Buy Online)

Best Mattresses For Side Sleepers

The mattress needs of side-sleepers are different than those of back- and stomach-sleepers.

The most important difference is that sleeping on your side creates sharper body angles and deeper pressure points that the surface of a mattress must contend with. This is why side-sleepers need more compliant surfaces that also provide excellent support without ‘bottoming-out’.

Side sleepers are also more likely to move around at night as they switch positions, so motion transfer can become an issue when two partners share the bed.

In this updated Best Mattress Guide, we’ve used these requirements to select the best online mattresses for side sleepers in five different categories:

The Best Mattress For Back Pain You Can Buy Online

Quit whining about your back pain – and DO something about it!

See My Favorite Mattress for Back Pain Sufferers 


My husband and I have slept on a LOT of mattresses during the last couple of years.

I suffer from almost daily back pain, caused by a bad car wreck in college and years of swimming competitively.

I’m not alone.

Back pain is one of the most common health conditions in America with 80 percent of the US population experiencing it sometime in the course of their lives. Sitting improperly, injury, awkward walking gaits and repeatedly lifting heavy weights can all lead to back pain.

Two common mattress problems can also make back pain worse:

  1. uneven support of your body, which causes too much pressure on the lower back; and 
  2. bad sleeping posture, which causes the spine to assume an unnatural position and cause your body to fight all night to keep things aligned.

What’s In This Mattress Guide

In this guide I review my three favorite mattresses to relieve back pain and explain why I picked them.
